This is a four walled box I hand shaped on my bandsaw then smoothed with fine French rasps before carving patterns from my imagination into the sides and top; the shape made me think of ancient Egypt so that must be where the carving inspiration came from…who knows. You can use it to store small items or quantities of special things. It was bandsawn from a block of black walnut that is known for its interesting grain swirls and color variations. The box lid adds interest to the piece because it has beautiful grain and color variations. I handcarved the body and lid of this box to add some interest. I finished this one both inside and out with food-safe walnut oil. Some natural inclusions may be found in this box such as knots, small cracks and checks that do not compromise the integrity of the piece. I carve my sign in the bottom of each box so you will always remember who cut, shaped, carved, and finished this small fine piece. Truly one of a kind.
